Police investigate fatal shooting on Maryland Street in Rochester

Local News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A 33-year-old man is dead after a Thursday shooting on Maryland Street near Glenwood Avenue in the city.

Investigators say officers were called to the house around 1:45 p.m. for reports of an unresponsive male inside. They found a man in his 30s who had been shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police identified the victim Thursday evening as Mark Smith.

Police say Smith did not live at the house, but friends and family knew he was there and had not heard from him in a while. They called police to the scene. Investigators believe the shooting happened within a few hours of that call.

“It’s certainly a drug related homicide,” said RPD Captain Frank Umbrino. “That’s all I’m going to say at this point in time.”

The Maryland Street shooting happened within hours of a drive-by shooting on Bernard Street. Police say the two are not related.
